Amazing: Kid Who Received Double Hand Transplant at CHOP Throws Out First Pitch at Orioles Game

Naturally, the video footage is ridiculously cute.

Last August, we told you about Zion Harvey. Harvey, then 8, had been released from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia after a successful double hand transplant. It was the first-ever hand transplant performed on a child.

He’s recovered quite well in the year since that surgery. Nine-year-old Harvey last night threw out the first pitch at the Orioles game at Camden Yards in Baltimore.

“Zion Harvey is a trooper,” Orioles center fielder Adam Jones told the team’s website. “And the pitch he threw I might’ve chased.”

Harvey lives in Owings Mills, Maryland, a suburb of Baltimore.
